Congressional Democrats have announced they will seek to overturn the results of the 2016 election and forcibly remove President Trump from office, by convening a panel of doctors who will declare him unfit for office.
The new legislation established the creepily-named “Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity.” This unelected body of appointed doctors would conduct a “medical examination of the President to determine whether the President is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office.”
If the “Commission finds that the President is temporarily or permanently impaired by physical illness or disability, mental illness, mental deficiency, or alcohol or drug use to the extent that the person lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to execute the powers and duties of the office of President,” the President could be removed from office.
Congress already has the power to do that by passing a resolution, ensuring the President may only be removed by a vote of elected, publicly-accountable lawmakers.
This legislation was introduced by Maryland Democrat Congressman Jamie Raskin. Raskin believes Trump’s use of Twitter makes him mentally ill, according to Raskins’ own repeated Twitter posts. Many liberals have stated they believe that since Trump is 70 years old, he is probably mentally unfit for office, a stunning attack on seniors.
The plan is so depraved that even some liberals are speaking out against it.
“It’s a political statement, not a medical statement,” Democrat former Congressman Dennis Kucinich tells Fox News. “I think it’s destroying the party as an effective opposition.
Kucinich suggests liberals drop their obsessive attempts to overturn the 2016 election, and instead focus on defeating Trump in 2020, saying their coup attempts are bad for the country.
The bill is H.R. 1987, the “Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act.”
